Bride's family members had filed a FIR
A bridegroom and his family members were arrested in Karachi on accusations of committing fraud.
Ibadur Rehman was arrested with his mother, brother and sister-in-law by the Nazimabad police as they were coming to the wedding.
The bride’s relatives grew suspicious when the suspects asked for Rs50,000 for wedding preparations.
The family carried out a background check in which they found that 35 cases have been booked against them. They filed an FIR against the bridegroom’s family members.
Police said that his brother Hamoodur Rehman managed to escape to evade arrest.
The suspect, while talking to SAMAA TV, claimed they are victims of fraud themselves.
“Those who filed a case against us have taken Rs100,000 themselves. There is no case against us,” he said.
